West Ham signing £20m-rated defender on a free would be superb transfer business

West Ham signing Burnley centre-back James Tarkowski in the summer on a free would be absolutely sensational transfer business.

Central defence is an area where David Moyes is fairly well covered at the moment.

Angelo Ogbonna potentially being out for the rest of the season will be a real concern for the West Ham boss, however.

And with Craig Dawson set to turn 32 before the end of the season, Moyes will undoubtedly be on the look-out for a new centre-half.

The Hammers manager will want to use whatever funds he has available to him mainly on at least one new striker and a top-class left-back.

So the opportunity to sign a quality central defender for absolutely nothing is one that the Hammers can’t afford to miss.

Signing Tarkowski would be really smart West Ham transfer business

The 28-year-old centre-back is a top-class Premier League defender.

He is very much in the no-nonsence category.

Sure, he isn’t great with the ball at his feet but that’s not that type of centre-back David Moyes likes anyway.

Tarkowski is a tenacious tackler, is incredibly strong in the air and is a great organiser and leader at the back.

Burnley want around £20 million for the former Brentford man in January (Evening Standard).

There is no way that West Ham will be paying that for the 28-year-old with just six months remaining on his current deal, and nor should we.

The Athletic claims that Tarkowski has already told Burnley that he will leave Turf Moor on a free transfer in the summer.

And West Ham shouldn’t hesitate to snap him up on a free.
